    Answer:

    The probability is 42%

    Step-by-step explanation:

    1. First take in account that the probability of take a vowel will be given by the following equation:

    Probability=\frac{numberofvowels}{totalnumberofletters}

    2. Count the number of vowels.

    The number of vowels in the word “Mathematical” is 5

    3. Count the total number of letters.

    The total number of letters (including the vowels) in the word “Mathematical” is 12

    4. So we have the following:

    Probability=\frac{5}{12}

    Probability=0.42

    Therefore, there are a probability of 42% that the piece of paper will be a vowel.
